We had a good morning collecting for Ronald McDonald House of Charities this Red Shoe Day. We had nine Imperial Beach Kiwanis members participate and we filled some big red shoes. The participants were Jason Kaminsky (our Treasurer), Tina Blinsman, Gary Brown (our current President), Sha-Ron Cobb (on our Board), Gary Trieschman, Dana Tomlinson, Paul Spear, June Engel, and me (Janet Wraight). June Engel is not in any photos because she went to our City Chamber meeting and received donations from them this morning.
